DNCE Interview With Nylon Magazine

What song of yours fits the following situations?Getting ready in the morning?

Joe Jonas: “Jinx,” because you don’t want to screw anything up.

Me time?

Cole Whittle: “Pay My Rent,” because you’ve got to uphold your responsibilities to the universe and maintain your existence.

Hooking up?

DNCE: “Cake By The Ocean.”

JJ: 1000 percent.

How did you all know you wanted to work with one another?

JJ: As cheesy as it sounds, just being friends for so many years, playing together once before and realizing it could be interesting was it. Also, timing.

If any artist, dead or alive, could cover your music, who would you want it to be?

JJ: Probably Will Ferrell’s character and his stepbrother in Step Brothers. 

CW: I’d like to hear Prince cover “Toothbrush.” And Run-D.M.C. do “Cake By The Ocean.”

Have you ever been starstruck?
CW: Absolutely. We were in the presence of Grumpy Cat, recently. We couldn’t even speak. She tried to talk to us and we couldn’t even do it. Oh, and Willie Nelson.

When was that?

CW: That’s Joe’s story. Well, his dad’s story.

JJ: My dad chased Willie Nelson down the street, but I think I’d freak out, too, if I met him.

At the end of the day, how do you wind down and ground yourself?
JJ: Watching our favorite TV shows.

Jack Lawless: We don’t really wind down. We just crash and burn.

C: We go 1,000 miles per hour until our bodies just stop, and we wake up the next morning.
